He also did get a good value of points to be a top 30 in that department.
He isn't the best on the PP yet. He can't run the PP, and he isn't that effective scoring on the PP. I don't believe last year was his fault, he was really trying to get things working but he didn't have the cast to help him. No Markov to gain the zone, and even Gomez was useful on past seasons to gain the zone on the PP.
The two things PK needs to work on would be consistency and PP. He really isn't far away from being a superstar, I just don't see him there yet. He has the tools to get there, that's why this contract is tough. He deserves a long term contract but at the same time it ties our hands.
Marc had the best idea to just sign him to an extension after 3 years if he gets a 4 year deal, which I think works best for everyone at this point.
On the PK also. I know his stats aren't that telling since he plays a high tempo game. The only thing I want from him is to find consistency.
It works best for MTL and habs fans, but that would be an idiotic move for Subban. If you're going to sign him until he becomes a UFA, then he is absolutely going to wait until July 1 of that year to sign any contract - it doesn't make sense for him to do anything else.
